I remember reading this when I was in elementary school. I hated reading then and I was neevr good at it. But my mother made me read a book and I picked this book. Even though it was really thick the cover made me want to crack it open. When I was little this made me want to read more.

Keeping notes of everyone in her diary, Harriet's notions of her friends become known and they dislike her. She then tries to do good so they'll like her once more. Shows children that great ambitions at the cost of others isn't the way to go.

Harriet loves to observe. She writes down everything she sees in her notebook. Sometimes her spying is more important than her friends. When Harriet is losing her friends, losing her beloved nanny, and losing her notebook all at the same time, her world turns upside down. Will Harriet ever become the spy that she is in her dreams?

Why do you call her a stalker. Is it because she watches what people do all of the time. I am asking you this #1because you called Harriet a stalker and#2 because I have not read the book yet.
